Vintage Apron for a Secret Santa

Friday 6 th December 2013

Could you avoid helping your sister when she requests your skills in doing the perfect gift for her Secret Santa?

Absolutely not, specially when she brings a beautiful fabric and the challenge to do something completely not your style.

ApronI'm not a big fan of the pink colour, neither I love the Hello Kitty Style.

But some days ago my sister brought me a pink fabric with lots of sweet cupcakes for a special project. Her Secret Santa in the office loves to make cupcakes like one of her idols in a TV show, and she decided to give her the hostess' book and an apron made with this fabric. 
The only problem? My sister doesn't know how to sew.

I was pleased to help her, but I hated to make a simple apron when the fabric and the girl tastes really ask for something special.

So I drafted a pattern with a vintage twist, ready to please a pin up cooker.
You will never see me in an apron like that, but I really enjoyed making something so showy, pink and sweet.

What do you think? Does the pattern match the fabric?
